Town Clock - Post Office 13th April, 1904. As the time fixed for starting the new "Town Clock" approached, His Worship the Mayor addressed the gathering. "He was sure the residents of Feilding were pleased that the clock was at last completed. The reason for the delay was that Messrs. Littlejohn and Son, had six clocks to make for various parts of the Colony." The Mayor also stated that Feilding having a clock was mainly due to the ladies of Feilding having raised 245 pounds, which was handed to the Government in February, 1902, the said amount then having been subsidised by Public Works Estimates, Spetmeber, 1902. Mrs Goodbehere then started the clock (by means of a rope), which immediately rang out the hour of three. Ref.Feilding Star Newspaper Research Feilding and Districts Historical Society 1997.
